Zombie

The Zombie was first created in 1934 as a hangover cure for a patron who claimed it made him zombie-like for days. That's how the drink was named. The Zombie gained in popularity when it was featured at the 1939 New York World's Fair. It has undergone many variations over the years, but this is the original Zombie recipe. The sweet fruits and juices tend to conceal the alcohol, so imbibe with care - takers should limit themselves to only two Zombies each. It's really quite good, but one is usually enough for me.
